After holding on to a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket worth $100,000 for more than a month, Linda Nichols of Mexico recently traveled to Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City to claim her winnings.
Nichols, 59, uncovered the $100,000 prize on a "$100,00 Crossword Doubler" ticket she purchased at A&D Discount Tobacco Shop, 2120 E. Liberty in Mexico, in late May. She made a special trip to that location because she knew they carried the $5 Crossword game, which is one of her favorites.
Nichols’ prize is one of five top prizes made available in the “$100,000 Crossword Doubler” game, which officially began on Jan. 18. Remaining prizes for this, and all Missouri Lottery Scratchers games, can be tracked on the Scratchers page.
